Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
Psalms 100:4-5 NIV
Entering gates, walking into the courts, praising his name…This is something you would do before a King. This is how you would honor and celebrate someone who meant a lot to you. This might be how you would publicly recognize an influential celebrity or a hero.
Why do we do this for the Lord? Because He is good. He has loved us and will continue to love us forever. His faithfulness has no end, it has repeated itself throughout all generations.
Every generation experiences a move of God. They all look & feel different, But the common denominator is God pouring out his love on people who desperately need of a Savior
This love compels us to be grateful, to celebrate, to honor him, and to worship Him.
